#CAPTURE4CUBES – PIC OF THE MONTH – ISAAC WERK AKA @dahawaiian_scooterguy
WHAT’S YOUR HOMETOWN?
The island of Maui.
WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW?
WHAT’S SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR HOMETOWN OR CURRENT TOWN THAT NOBODY ELSE KNOWS?
It doesn’t rain that much.
WHAT IS YOUR FULL-TIME PROFESSION?
I’m working on being a full time content creator.
HOW DID YOU GET INTO PHOTOGRAPHY?
Ever since my first GoPro that I got in 2014 I have always been super interested in just having fun and shooting photos of my friends and sharing them on social media.
WHAT’S IN YOUR CAMERA BAG RIGHT NOW?
A GoPro Hero6, GoPro Hero5 Session, & REMOVU K1. I also have a broad range of mounts that I love using from @moderntechnocracy.
WHAT INSPIRES YOUR WORK?
YOUR WORK GOES ACROSS A BROAD RANGE OF GENRES–AERIAL, UNDERWATER, ACTION/ADVENTURE, LIGHT-PAINTING–WHAT CONNECTS ALL OF THESE FOR YOU?
I think it would have to be my style. I always love creating quality content with unique angles, vibrant colors, and that is full of action.
WHAT’S WITH THE PINEAPPLES? WHEN DID THAT START AND WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
So I started shootings pineapples with my friend Cyrus (@hawaii_aquaholic) in early 2017. I was initially inspired by some of the photos he created with his pineapple and wanted to see if I could take it to the next level. I started experimenting with pineapples underwater, pineapples during sunset, and pineapples in the air. I loved how the pictures turned out and some of my best work is with pineapples. People have also really enjoyed my pineapple pictures and I have gotten more exposure because of it. My love for pineapple photography has grown immensely and I’ve been getting creative with my pineapples ever since.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE?
GoPro or don’t go
IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPERPOWER WHAT WOULD IT BE?
CAN YOU EXPLAIN YOUR WINNING #CAPTURE4CUBES ENTRY?
So I was out shooting with my friend Matt (@mq_raine). We set up our cameras facing the spot where Matt was going to spin the steel wool. Then I used one of Matt’s Lume Cubes to light up the palm trees behind him. He spun the wool, then we reviewed the photos and I got this perfect shot of Matt spinning steel wool on the beach.
ANY EPIC SHOTS/TRIPS PLANNED THAT YOU CAN SHARE WITH US?
I really wanna try shooting steel wool on the beach with a pineapple. But we’ll see…lol
